The Information We Collect

§ N°I


Information that is directly provided to us, such as personal information, and information that is passively or automatically collected from you, such as anonymous information collected from your browser or device. In this Privacy Policy, we refer to all of this as the Information.

When you interact with you through our content on third party websites, applications, integrations or platforms, they may obtain any information regarding your interaction with that content, such as content you have viewed, your game performance, high scores, and information about advertisements within the content you have been shown or may have clicked on.

A representative, non-exhaustive list of the types of automatically collected information by other websites may include: network or Internet protocol address and type of browser you are using (e.g., Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the name of your Internet service provider (e.g., Comcast, Verizon or AT&T) and domains used by such providers, mobile network, device identifiers (such as an Apple IDFA or an Android Advertising ID), device settings, device attributes, browser settings, the web pages of the Services you have visited, Services visited before and after you visit a Service, the type of handheld or mobile device used to view the Service (e.g., iOS, Android), location information, and the content and advertisements you have accessed, seen, forwarded and/or clicked on.


How We Use the Information

§ N°II


Oftentimes, Information may be used to provide and communicate with you about the Services or your account, or fulfill your requests regarding the Services, including without limitation requests for newsletters and notifications. It is also standard practice that Information may also be used to communicate with you about other products, programs or services that is believed to be of interest to you, such as providing technical support for services, preventing fraud or potentially illegal activities (including, without limitation, copyright infringement), or customizing or personalizing ads, offers and content made available to you based on your visits.

When you provide information from your social media account, it enables companies to do things like (1) give you exclusive content, (2) personalize your online experience, (3) contact you through the social media service or directly by sending you the latest news, special offerings, and rewards, and (4) enable you to share your experience and content via social media services.

Sometimes, companies use cookies or similar technologies to connect your Information with a unique identifier that then associates the Information with your device or browser.


Information Sharing and Disclosure

§ N°III


Web sites can disclose Information as follows:

1. To service providers or Partners that they have engaged to perform business-related functions on our behalf—this may include service providers that: (a) conduct research and analytics; (b) create content; (c) provide customer, technical or operational support; (d) conduct or support marketing (such as email or advertising platforms); (e) fulfill orders and user requests; (f) handle payments; (g) host their Services, forums and online communities; (h) administer contests; (i) maintain databases; (j) send or support online or mobile advertising; and (k) otherwise support their Services.

2. In response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena, a law enforcement or government agency's request or similar request.

3. With third parties in order to investigate, prevent, or take action (in our sole discretion) regarding potentially illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to any person, us, or the Services, or violations of our policies, the law or our Terms of Use, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Services.


Cookies and Other User and Ad-Targeting Technologies.

§ N°IV


We don’t use cookies and other technologies that can be used both to provide our Services to you and to advertise to you. We also don’t work with Partners to help them advertise to you when you visit other websites or mobile applications, and to help them perform user analytics. These technologies are oftentimes used used to analyze how Users interact with advertising elsewhere, and more generally, to learn more about what services or offers you might prefer to receive. We describe some of these technologies below.

1. Cookies—To enhance your online experience, web sites sometimes use “cookies”, “web beacons” or other tracking technologies. Cookies are text files placed in your computer's browser to store your preferences. Cookies can be used to understand Service and Internet usage and to improve or customize the products, content, offerings, services or advertisements. For example, a website may use cookies to personalize your experience by saving your password in password-protected areas, and enable you to use shopping carts. Cookies or other tracking technologies can also be used to offer you products, content, offerings or services that may be of interest to you and to deliver relevant advertising, when you visit other websites or applications.

2. Syncing Cookies and Identifiers—Third-party ad platforms may synchronize unique, anonymous identifiers (such as those associated with cookies) in order to match uniquely coded user identifiers to their own. This can be used, for instance, to enhance data points about a particular unique browser or device, and thus enable them or others to send ads that are more relevant, match Users to their likely product interests, or better synchronize, cap, or optimize advertising.

3. Locally Stored Objects—Certain web sites may employ locally stored objects (“LSOs”) and other client side storage tracking technologies in certain situations where they help to provide a better user experience, such as to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies, or in order to target or help their Partners target ads, analyze ad performance, or perform user, website or market analytics. For LSOs utilized by Adobe Flash you can access Flash management tools from Adobe's website. In addition, some, but not all browsers, provide the ability to remove LSOs, sometimes within cookie and privacy settings.

4. Disabling Cookies—Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. You may be able to set your browser to warn you before accepting certain cookies or to refuse certain cookies. However, if you disable the use of cookies in your web browser, some features of the Services may be difficult to use or inoperable.

Certain third-party companies that use techniques other than HTTP cookies to recognize your computer or device and/or to collect and record information about your web surfing activity. Please keep in mind that your web browser may not permit you to block the use of these techniques, and those browser settings that block conventional cookies may have no effect on such techniques. To learn more about Interest-Based Advertising or to opt-out of this type of advertising by those third parties that are members of the DAA opt-out program, please go to http://www.aboutads.info.

5. Web Beacons—Web sites may also use “web beacons” or clear GIFs, or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on a Service or in an email, to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing a Service or email. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that Service. Web beacons can also be used to provide information on the effectiveness of email campaigns (e.g., open rates, clicks, forwards, etc.).

6. Mobile Device Identifiers and SDKs—Websites also sometimes use, or partner with publishers, publisher-facing, or app developer platforms that use mobile Software Development Kits (“SDKs”) that collects Information, such as mobile identifiers (e.g., IDFAs and Android Advertising IDs), and Information connected to how mobile devices interact with Services and those using our Services. A mobile SDK is the mobile app version of a web beacon (see Web Beacons above). The SDK is a bit of computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected, and related services or analytics to be performed. They may use this technology to deliver or help their Partners deliver certain advertising through mobile applications and browsers based on information associated with your mobile device.


Other Important Information About Your Privacy

§ N°V


1. How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals—At this time Services on the Common Office® Network do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include “do not track” instructions.

2. Linked Services—Some other Services contain links to or integrations with other services such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other media services and platforms whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult these other services’ privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

3. International Transfer—This Service is governed by and operated in accordance with US law. If you are located outside of the US, you use this Service at your own risk.

In particular, your Information will be transferred to and processed in the United States where many of our central databases operate.

4.
